NOVEMBER 2017 RRC CLUB SHIPMENT (Ships beginning November 13, 2017)
Amapola Creek by Richard Arrowood has been built on a solid foundation of making wines of "quality without compromise”. But there is no resting on one’s laurels, even after a career that started in 1965 and continues 50+ years later. The best is yet to come! Our November 2017 Richards Reserve Club selection features three wines that can be introduced as new, tried, and true.
New, an exclusive RRC 50-case bottling of 2016 Grenache, Estate Vineyard. As grape varieties go, Grenache is grown and made into wine pretty much all over the world. Winemaker’s stylistic intent will dictate the outcome more than the grape. Winemaster Richard Arrowood again demonstrates finesse with this fresh and floral, easy-drinking wine. RRC exclusive $48
Tried, is the new vintage release of our 2016 Jos. Belli Vineyard Chardonnay. If finesse best describes Richard’s wine making style, his Chardonnay’s nails it. “A yeasty nose with some zingy citrus zest notes and a gentle peachiness. Full-bodied with a lovely creamy texture, it has mouth-filling citrus and stone fruit flavors and plenty of finesse, finishing with a compelling salinity” (aka zip). 93-95 points (Barrel Sample) the Wine Advocate Feb-2017. Retail $48 RRC $40.80
True, is a bottle from the winery cellar of our inaugural Estate Vineyard 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon. This was the very first vintage and wine made by Richard for his Amapola Creek Winery. These young estate vines at the time presented us with a wine that surprised us then and continues to do so. An amazing example of a youthful 12-year-old Cabernet Sauvignon. 95 points Aug-2015 Robert Parker proclaimed…another stunner. Retail $110 RRC $95
